NEW CAMPAIGN AD QUOTES WAPO, HILLARY IN DISHONEST ATTACK
I’m not sure which is worse, O’s campaign lies – and equally untrue ads – accusing Mitt Romney of “shipping U.S. jobs overseas”, or that after having been exposed, his refusal to stop the disingenuous rhetoric and pull the discredited ads. FactCheck.org: “The president’s campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney ‘shipped jobs’ overseas.”
As has been the case with the timely ads from the RNC, Team Romney isn’t shy about hitting Team O head-on and calling a spade a spade: Barack Obama is lying about Mitt Romney shipping jobs overseas. Period. Check out Mitt’s new ad:
Here’s a synopsis of the FactCheck.org findings:
- One TV ad, called “Come and Go,” claims that Romney “shipped jobs to China and Mexico.” But two examples cited by the Obama campaign occurred after Romney left Bain. There’s no clear evidence that a third company shipped jobs to China under Romney.
- A second ad called “Revealed” mocks Romney’s tough talk about cracking down on China’s trade practices by saying “all he’s ever done is send them our jobs” and citing the Washington Post article. But the newspaper article contained no examples of U.S. jobs being shipped to China while Romney was working at Bain.
- The “Come and Go” ad casts Romney as a “corporate raider,” but that term, loaded with negative connotations, is simply inaccurate. Bain didn’t engage in hostile takeovers when Romney was at the helm.
- That ad also repeats the claim that as governor of Massachusetts, Romney was “outsourcing state jobs to India.” But it wasn’t the state that outsourced contracts. Rather, Romney vetoed a measure that would have prevented the state from doing business with a state contractor that was locating state customer-service calls in India.
Who is the Hypocrite-in-Chief to accuse anyone of outsourcing? While it’s no surprise that the sock puppets of the Obama Media Group have struggled mightily to defend their savior’s dishonest attacks on Mitt Romney over the last few weeks, it’s equally unsurprising that the reality of O’s hypocrisy is this: Of the two candidates in the presidential campaign, it is Barack Obama who has outsourced American jobs – not Mitt Romney.
In a recent battle with MSNBC Obamabot Andrea Mitchell, former Hew Hampshire governor John Sununu not only destroyed the argument that Obama has not outsourced American jobs overseas; he couldn’t help but laugh at the obviously-struggling Mitchell in the process. Here’s Sununu on Obama outsourcing:
“When you’ve sent $500 million to Fisker and it goes to Finland immediately. When you send the solar money and it goes to Mexico. When you send the turbine money and it goes to Denmark. And we can go on all day. There is $29 billion worth of purchases that came out of this administration – outsourced jobs to foreign countries. Mitt Romney outsourced zero.”
Watch and enjoy, as Sununu destroys the liberal lapdog extraordinaire:
Lest you think this pathetic performance by one of O’s most fervent sock puppets destroyed her journalistic credibility (as if she ever had journalistic credibility), rest assured; Andrea destroyed it long ago – most recently, by airing a selectively-edited video of Romney – designed to make him look like an out-of-touch moron, and by refusing to apologize when she got caught.
Before we go, a few words on outsourcing. While outsourcing has become the latest hot potato in the campaign (because Team O will create every diversion imaginable to steer the discussion away from O’s disastrous economic record), the reality is this: outsourcing – in and of itself – is not a bad thing. In fact, many times, it is a very good thing. Outsourcing helps American companies remain competitive – which in turn generates jobs in America – but that’s another discussion for another post.
The O-man’s Reelection Campaign and the liberal media: never a dull (honest) moment.
Desperate people do desperate things.
